Student Profile

Zheng “Derek” Zhang
MA, Art History

After receiving his B.A. in Communications from UC San Diego, Zheng became a journalist in the Bay area. He started off covering the crime beat and slowly directed his focus onto issues and events related to art, which has always been his passion. He has been questioning politicians and the society as a whole as a reporter for five years. Then there was a day when he stopped and pondered: Is it as important to critically think of the answers collected as it is the will of collecting them? He therefore came to Davis to ask himself more art questions.  Zheng is particularly interested in the art and history of Chinese calligraphy.
